We have had a week of windy fine days filled with hard work and many garden jobs. Things are growing like mad so that is good but it means meals take longer to prepare when beans have first to be picked then podded before cooking. The taste is superb so I guess it is worth it. I tickled a new potato and they are big enough to steal. Broad beans which many people don't like are so doing so well we are eating them as babies( that's by far the nicest way ) every second day. Silver beet and lettuces are getting ahead of me but any waste goes to compost to come around again!
The flower gardens are getting buffeted by wind but things are bright and pick able and the bees are in Heaven. Photos are of Irises, Roses and Red Rover Alstroemeria and the small purple flowers are on a Sandpaper vine ( it leaves are that coarse ).
The only sewing time I have had this week is after dinner at night when I am tired, but can manage a bit of hand quilting on J's quilt. I am using a seahorse motif in variegated thread to further the seaside theme.The purple binding went on better than I hoped and the whole little quilt ( 45"
by 45 " )actually lies flat - so I am well pleased with my efforts there. Enjoy your weekend everyone.
